Preventing alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse is no easy task. Since 1992, PreventionWorkz has demonstrated that when all sectors of a community come together —social change happens.
Community coalitions bring together key leaders within the community to address local conditions from underage drinking to prescription drug abuse. Coalitions are comprised of parents, youth, educators, law enforcement, the faith community, healthcare providers, social service providers, civic and government officials, business leaders, members of the media and other concerned citizens. The result is a comprehensive, community-wide approach to reduce substance abuse and its related problems. PreventionWorkz evidence-based environmental model focuses on changing laws, policies, practices, systems and attitudes to transform the communities in which we live, work and play. Nobody can do it alone.. we need YOUR help and involvement through local coalitions to make lasting changes in communities. For more information click on the coalition in your county:
